Hi I was wondering if a hard drive work as fast in a sata 2 port as if it is in a sata 3 port because my motherboard (gigabyte z68xp-ud3) has 4 sata 2 ports that I will populate and set as raid 10. Thanks

If the controller on the logic board is a sata 3 controller then it will work faster in a sata 3 port.

Take a look at your motherboards specifications for the data transfer rate of the sata ports. I dont think you will see any differ in performance.

"When a RAID set is built across the SATA 6Gb/s and SATA 3Gb/s channels, the system performance of the RAID set may vary depending on the devices being connected".
